My Character:
  • Entrepreneur
What have you been proudest of this year?

Reshaping the Hometown team and seeing some fantastic client wins as a result. I love it when a plan comes together.

And what's been your biggest disappointment?

The general election.

When was the last time you surprised yourself?

Undisclosed.

If you could change one thing about the industry at the moment, what would it be (and why)?

I would make it take itself way less seriously – what we do is great.

How do you get your creative juices flowing?

Playing with my little crazy, hyperactive two-year-old.

You're planning a fun night out. Who from the industry would be your (fantasy) playmates (and why)?

Undisclosed.

The internet has been banned. What do you miss most (and why)?

The Microphone Check podcast. It's brilliant.

What's the last Google search you did?

How do I build a spaceship?

The robots are coming. What would you get yours to do for you?

Build me a spaceship.

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

An astronaut (obvs).

All the world's culture (art, music, literature etc) is about to be destroyed. What one thing would you save (and why)?

All the books by Haruki Murakami – they are books that make me dream every time.

I'm still here because…

I haven't built my spaceship yet.
